Event description

Description

This is a 4 1/2 hour workshop, which includes a 30 minute lunch break.

£45

I call these classes 'Cooking with Colour' because that is exactly what happens in this experimental class! A fusion of foraging, recipe following, chemistry and colour creation all bundled up with a range of tie-dyeing techniques.

My passion for Natural Dyeing blossomed from blackberry picking at my Granny's every summertime and when it came to choosing our own A-level Textile project to investigate, I chose Natural Dyeing. I've loved it ever since!

We will be dyeing with both man made and natural fabrics and with a range of foraged and gleaned dyestuffs, all of which are either free or readily available locally. All dyestuffs and materials are provided. We will aim to dye 4 different fabrics and 4 different dye stuffs.

Also learn about mordants and how to fix and change colours.

How to prepare yarn for dyeing.

This class aims to inspire and encourage experimentation. There are some rules in Natural Dyeing, but I like to bend them a little!

Class sizes are limited to 4 people keeping it focused and fun. Please bring an apron if you have one, or wear old clothes. Latex gloves will be provided. Please bring your own lunch. Tea and coffee is provided.
